Brilliant! Abso-fucking-lutely brilliant! I have been disappointed since Matt Smith's reign started, but it's all wiped away. Brilliant. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Allons-y!

The Day of the Doctor was WONDERFUL. I'm so glad I've become a fan of Doctor Who.

Ehhhh, I liked it but it didn't blow me away. The Tom Baker bit was great. I wish they had the "real" Rose and not some Bad Wolf thing.

Still processing...

It looks like the time lords were screwed anyway (mass dalek blockade) and The Moment would have only hastened their demise?

At one point I was kinda worried about how Time War was taking a backseat to the Zygon stuff... but somehow the payoff was worth it in the end.

Great chemistry and banter between the three. Loved the cameos also.

Really enjoyed it. A well told story with plenty of celebratory moments and hinting towards where the show is going next. Shame CE couldn't show up for the regeneration but loved Tom Baker showing up at the end.

Personally I didn't like the Zygon stuff but the ending made up for it. All 50th anniversary events had terrible story-lines but good endings.

Yes, that was good.

In quiz memes I always come out as the Fourth, and I've always thought I'm more like the Sixth... But no.

I am the John Hurt Doctor, really. The one who... well, my wife said it better as we were watching, so I'm sure she'll comment on LJ or Facebook and I'll copy it....

Re: The Day of the Doctore Review Thread (Spoilers?)

Now that's what a love letter to fans and the show looks like B&B!

Everything but one thing hit the right note, the blubbing scientist wishing for the Doctor to save her (which she then did herself, which pretty much counters my annoyance at the scene).

Everything else (the humour, the character drama, the action, THE ENDING) was perfect. And I know it's a dirty word, but I actually enjoyed having the gravitas!

My fave episode since Parting of the Ways. In fact it may one up it.

Squee! Bloody brilliant. So many great moments. I was praying we'd get Capaldi even just for a second and was rewarded. As for the Curator... yes, I had tears. How awesome was he. It was like he'd never left. Who cares how old he looks.

Best part is am going to see it in 3D this afternoon. Can't wait

That was fantastic.

Isn't there some rule that these big special events must be disappointing ?

Ditto. Can't process now, fully.

Didn't we hear that Capaldi's role in "The Fires of Pompeii" would be a plot point? I wonder if Tom Baker's role as the curator is tied into that. The Doctor having other lives...

I liked how they have got a way to bring the time lords back.
Never liked the fact that they killed them off.
